Richard Wills, of Boston’s venerable Royal Barry Wills architectural firm, worked with the owners to develop the design and detailing of this elegant country home. Wills’ fame was based on his flair for blending classically inspired New England tradition with the demands of modern living. His skill is evident throughout this 1986 colonial home and barn. Privately sited within 5.2 acres, approached via a long driveway thru a park like landscape, this home offers a gracious floorplan, a screened porch, a three car attached garage, a separate in-law apartment, a 44 x 20 heated gunite pool adjacent to a cabana/artist studio with an additional 3 car garage under. Highlights of the 1st floor include a step down liv room with a fireplace and doors leading to a lovely brick patio with view, and the great room. This room was designed true to the owners’ favorite room in a former antique home. It has a fireplace surrounded by a wall of wood paneling, access to the porch, built-ins, and is open to the kitchen. The kitchen features a center island perfect for food preparation and casual dining and a walk-in pantry. A corner 1st floor office off the center hall entry has a fireplace, a bath, and could be a first floor bedroom. The back lawn sweeps down to the pool and well equipped cabana. A pergola was added in 2015, the same year the pool and patio were refurbished. Here, the top of Mt Kearsarge and extensive gardens are in full view. Quality details are in every area & every system.
